A Mission to Change America

 John Robert Lewis

February 21, 1940 – July 17, 2020

"We have a moral obligation, a

mission and a mandate!"

Quote, John Robert Lewis

From his beginning to his end,

John Lewis championed

through the years

again and again!

"We the People" should make certain

to understand, appreciate and truly

cherish the heroic and steadfast

bravery of John Lewis:  one of

our greatest Americans who

should never be forgotten. 

During a time when egregious violations of 

"civil rights" were heightened with rage against African-Americans, there was

young John Lewis - the son of a

sharecropper -  in the midst of the battle with unshakable determination coupled with 

fear for his life. Although John Lewis was beaten nearly unto death and jailed at least 40 times in his quest for a just & equal America, he forged 

on with commitment and overcame numerous adversities with the peacefulness of his feisty 

Humanity.  Thus, John Lewis endured the

violence and steadfastly championed 

the cause of "Civil Rights" that

would change America forever.

"The Civil Rights Movement" 

became the thriving, pulsating heartbeat 

that forced America to change its shameful, 

post-Slavery image:  a hypocritical image which continued to be contrary to reality.  Following

the era of institutionalized Slavery, America was

yet wreaking with injustices, inequalities and 

ugly racism.  Quite a contrast for a Nation 

which professed freedoms and equality

at home and Around the World.

 Mere words cannot fully express the great

and expansive passion of John Lewis'

fervent quest for a better America.  

It's every Citizen's responsibility

to ensure that his legacy

lives on forever.

Mission Accomplished!

Work Well Done!

Eternal Souls that shall never fade away.

Eternity recalled two on the same day.

The mission wasn't easy - the task

at hand was not for play!

The road was arduous . . .

fraught with perils along the way!

"Civil Rights Champions"

C.T. Vivian: July 30, 1924 – July 17, 2020

John Lewis: February 21, 1940 – July 17, 2020

[L]  Cordy Tindell Vivian:  July 30, 1924 – July 17, 2020

was an American minister, author, and was a close friend and lieutenant

of Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement.

[R]  John Robert Lewis:  February 21, 1940 – July 17, 2020

was an American politician and civil rights leader. He was the U.S. Representative for Georgia's 5th congressional district from 1987 until his death in 2020. 

If it were not for "Civil Rights Champions"

would there ever had been any further

focus on "Human Rights?"

Deepest Gratitude . . .

John Lewis with wife Lillian Miles and son John-Miles Lewis.  Lillian was a devoted wife to John Lewis. According to media reports, the couple met at a New Year’s Eve party in 1967.

. . . to John Lewis.

Your work and passion for

civil rights, justice, equality

and a better America shall

never be in vain.
